Clafoutis with plums and figs
The traditional clafoutis with cherrie is a must in high summer. When it gets cooler outside, we like to bake it with sweet plums and figs, then enrich it with a little finely grated tonka bean, whose sweet, intense fragrance marries perfectly with the winter fruits. Perfect for an afternoon surprise visit.
Preheat the oven to 180 °C top/bottom heat or 160 °C fan oven. Thoroughly butter an ovenproof dish. Wash the plums and figs, halve and pit the plums and quarter the figs.
Mix the eggs, tonka bean grate and sugar vigorously, then stir in the sour cream and cream. Refine with plum water if desired.
